I've seen the Stade de Frank described as being a state of the art stadium a fair few places this week. Now I have no doubts that it's a massive improvement on the old Pairc (which was a bit of a kip) but I imagine state of the art is seriously pushing it.

Its very dated looking something from 30 years ago. If they actually continued the roof over the terracing it would help massively bit of a joke modern stadium with no roof in ireland

The amount of whinging people do about roofs in this country is ridiculous.
I'm going to games thirty odd years and I can count on one hand the number of soakings I've got.
Someone was giving out about the ladies toilets in Navan a week or so ago.

Floodlights only installed on one side of the pitch, Knock-off Hawkeye, no big screen, same disaster of a setup as regards parking as it was previously. There is no way in hell it's anything close to being state of the art.

Also there is talk that the centre of excellence doesn't even have a full-size pitch.  ::)

And this is with it all being late and way over budget.

The shots look well - all taken when sun splitting the sky. May as well have no roof with that little bit that's there. Wide open both ends. Lookso like a bit of a rushed job to me. An improvement undoubtedly but will look dated in a few years. Looks a three quarter job.

You would have a point if they spent a lot less on the stadium. Just as before the GAA get a poor return for their euro. The new casement shits on this from a great height for not much more money. Shame its stuck in planning wilderness

It has been revealed that Cork GAA have been left with a debt of €23m from the redevelopment of Pairc Uí Chaoimh. The final cost is €86.4m, that represents an over-run of €16m.

Seems they have some land on the North side of the city that they're going to sell.
Also naming rights for the Stadium.

€16m is some over run. Was anyone keeping tabs on this project?

The €86.4 million isn't the final final cost - it's only the current cost - it's very likely to break the €90 million cost before everything is paid for.

A year ago they were talking about the stadium being debt-free when it opened in, now they have a bridging loan for €19 million in place co-signed by Croke Park.

An utter disaster of a project and all the main players are all going to be on the board of the stadium.

According this official looking guy at 1.59 in the video "it's the only stadium in Europe that meets all the standards"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TA7YtwokPxI

I wonder what standards he is talking about, any ideas?

Well obviously its the only new stadium in the world to be built to the old soviet standards but here is the key for the same price as a modern all seater roofed stadium elsewhere ingenious.

probably things like access security playing surfaace , spectator comfort , seat size ,lines of visibility, concession stall areas sufficient bathrooms located near hospital public transport  , city center ETC,Architectural design, player, media and disabled facilities

or maybe its just about the roof
